Visit to St. Johns Mercy NICU and Dr. Jewell's Office

We just had to go and visit the NICU and Dr. Jewell's office while we were in town. We arranged to visit when our primary nurse, Joanne was working... She is such a wonderful nurse. She spent lots of time taking care of Addie and Alex while they were in the NICU. We met her on Christmas Day and she has been with us ever since! We thank God that we met such a wonderful nurse and friend... Thanks Joanne for all that you did everyday for us and all days for others! We miss you!
Joanne holds Alex and Addie! This was the 500th time that she has seen them since they left the NICU. Just kidding! We have only seen her a handful of times and are already looking forward to seeing her again!
Meet Nurse Mary with Dr. Jewell's office. Mary was our ultrasound tech for the past 4 years. When we were trying to get pregnant and when we were pregnant with Addie and Alex she was always there to help us! Thanks Mary for all of your support and encouragement over the years! We miss you too!
Dr. Jewell holds Addie and Alex for the 1st time. Dr. Jewell has been my OB for the past 5 years. He is a very compassionate man with a big heart! We have been through a lot and could not have done it without his support. Thanks Dr. Jewell! When I was spending time in the ante partum unit, he was there all the time to check on me! Unfortunately, with my c-section being an emergency, he was unable to deliver the twins. But, it was wonderful getting to know his partner, Dr. Shaner.
